Re: “Buyer’s Market

MLG&W seems to be in bully mode lately. After reading their President bash his own meter readers and their union over the Smartmeter fiasco, now we read of this bullying in an area which has even less ability to fight back. There is plenty of vacant and blighted land in this town for MLG&W to purchase. No need to utterly destroy this neighborhood. This is disgusting. There WILL be pushback on this. And thank you, Flyer, for reporting this. Please stay with this story.

Re: “OPC: 'No Doubt' On Reaching $1 Million Goal by Sunday

A park conservancy whose mission and duty is to protect and conserve a park has raised nearly $1,000,000 for a parking plan that is not even in existence, with no binding agreement from the Zoo or City that they won't come back in 1, 5, or 10 years with a demand to use more of the Greensward for parking, and with a distinct possibility that more of the north part of the historic, Kessler-designed Greensward will be paved over, including the northern treeline with its magnificent old magnolia trees. What a travesty! All out of fear of our City Council which continues to bow down to our lunatic Zoo head, Chuck Brady. Oh, what a dent that $2,000,000 could make in a parking garage that could be used by the whole park and is so badly needed! We need an OPC with a backbone and the guts to stand up for the park like those four ladies did against the Federal government decades ago. The real park protectors, Citizens to Protect Overton Park, and their many supporters continue their campaign to stop the destruction of the northern Greensward. Not One Inch! Save the Greensward!

Re: “Q&A with Martha Hample

Seems like a consultant would know when you don't have all the requisite permits, no matter how "creative" you are trying to be. Seems like a developer of other creative restaurants, including Loflin Yard, would know when you don't have all the requisite permits.

Re: “Rate Changes to Come for Metered Parking Downtown

A two-hour limit during weekdays in the Central Business District is going to make it very hard for those with business/trials in the Shelby County Courthouse or in law offices, and force people on to the expensive private lots. Putting these meters downtown at all is very regressive, and I have friends who no longer come downtown for entertainment because of the hassle and expense of parking.

Re: “Public Libraries to Have Extended Summer Hours

I think the Central Library should be open until 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, too. The weekend is the time many who work finally have time for a library visit. Take the $300,000 the Mayor just spent on the ridiculous Chill, Don't Kill ads and put it in the library budget. Access to books and learning is a better way to raise good citizens. And surely, there is some way to stagger the library's staff so that three extra hours can be added on Friday and Saturday nights.

Re: “Safer Streets Wanted in the City

We desperately need police radar in front of Overton Park on Poplar. Recently, one young woman was killed crossing the street there and another woman was seriously brain-injured by drag racers. Drag racing and speeding are common there every evening. I rescued an impaired man lying in a lane of traffic there last fall, at my extreme peril and his. Do whatever it takes to enforce the law on Poplar. I see parked squad cars all over town, up in parks and behind buildings. Put them on our streets.

Re: “What They Said ...

It's illegal to park on grass in Memphis. Period
